Cowboys receiver Dez Bryant was not at practice Thursday during the 25 minutes open to the media. Bryant, who deeply bruised his thigh during the victory over the 49ers on Sept. 18, had been limited in practice Wednesday. The Cowboys will be without receiver Miles Austin another week as he recovers from a hamstring injury. Austin is expected to return after the bye week.
Fullback Tony Fiammetta (hamstring), cornerback Orlando Scandrick (ankle), guard Derrick Dockery (knee) and defensive end Jason Hatcher (calf) were not at practice. Scandrick, Dockery and Hatcher are expected to miss this week.
Kicker David Buehler was dressed out but was not kicking during the portion of practice open to the media.
